Reinvent Giving

Reinvent Giving

Gift giving is stressful, especially when you’re trying to find something to give to someone that means the world to you. You want it to be something that they’ll love, and something that they’ll be able to use all the time! Luckily, I partnered up with HP to do just that.

Autumn in Central Park :: Green coat & High boots


Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m so happy to be here in NYC and autumn in Central Park is utterly breathtaking.  We strolled through the park and I couldn’t stop ohhhh-ing and ahhhh-ing.  Golden leaves raining down and tall skyscrapers peeking through bare branches… it felt like a scene from a movie!



Restyling some of my old favorites (this Forever 21 top and Pierre Balmain skirt) with an olive green military coat for a cozy autumn look!

Velvet Love :: Textured blazer & Midi wrap dress


Happy Monday everyone!  And happy holidays!




Velvet for the holidays is like brunch on the weekends.  Or like cats on laptops… there’s an inevitable gravitation.  My cat is literally on my laptop right now as we speak and I’m typing with one finger navigating between his paws.  In other words, velvet and the holidays belong together.  And velvet is so timeless and versatile!  It’s perfect for day and night.

From morning lattes to late afternoon meetings, I love creating the feel of a power suit.  Pairing similar textures together with this textured blazer and velvet pants is a great way to elevate a day look.  For night, I adore classics with a twist!  This velvet wrap dress is beautiful for office parties and perfect for girl’s night outs.  With all black ensembles, I like adding pops of color (red on the lips and gold accents in the accessories) to give more depth to the look.





I hope you enjoyed both looks and the styling.  Thank you so much for reading!  And special thanks to Target for partnering on this post!
